Our work reflects our interests in ecology, applied conservation, biogeography, education and science communication. We aim to approach conservation science and ecology in an interdisciplinary way, incorporating ideas and frameworks from different disciplines, including social sciences, to better address fundamental issues such as extinction, population decline and the impacts of climate change on biodiversity.
